Nervous Wreck.... nearly....

Son Andy's 1st semester results is out today but he is still IPOH. When he called up his college in Penang to ask for his results, they didn't want to disclose to him. He must go collect it personally but after hearing from his college mates on "who passed" and "who failed", he was in a nervous frenzy.

Then he told me that if he could not get his GPA above 3, his scholarship will be automatically terminate! (oh gosh....Why now only u tell me this? The way u enjoyed yrself during the past few months, I am now more worried and nervous than u...)

He pestered me to call up the college, he said they might "give face" to the student's parent.... Ok, ok..let me try......

"Hello, education unit? May I know the results of my son, Andy so and so....from ......course... u see, we r from IPOH and I just want to know his GPA is above 3 or not... that is all I want to know....." (talking humbly and gently)

Thank goodness, the lady on the other line was very obliging, she said normally they don't disclose the results on the phone but she would check for me on the GPA... (silently, I prayed... prayed... holding breath....)

After a moment pause and some clicking computer sound, she said, "er, Andy.... passed all the subjects and his GPA is above 3."

pheeeewwwww, what a relief......

THANK YOU GOD.....

Till the next semester again... my heart can rest for now... for these few months, at least...

  19. how the lady know u r mom? i can pretend also right....
    by right..the college didnt do the right thing cos its confidentiality. No integrity!!!

    yes although i know u r anxious... sorry la. i work in a similar organisation n i m very particular cos anything leak out unnecessary may impose a lot of implication one..

    ReplyDelete
  20. Congrats! So this Sat, you can celebrate in Penang with all the good food!

  21. Nessa, thanks, if he can continue to sustain at this level, i m more than relieved..

    Ladyviral: yeah, actually anyone can call, right, as u said, but i explained to her that she doesnt hv to tell me the details, all i want to know is pass the subjects and above 3 or not..she didnt tell me more than that, it is being ethical la.. hahaa... yes, i believe P n C is very important in some organisations and it is very sensitive too when it comes to certain issues..

    ReplyDelete
  22. oh sorry, Rachel, u r not ladyviral.. something wrong with my eyes just now...


    Pete: terima kasih but no, no celebration.. not a big issue.. haha..

  26. krystal, thanks... i dont know his detail results yet, might be ngam ngam passing mark for all...

    Barb, thanks to u too.. i m not that "proud" yet..haha.. goodness knows what results he is getting, but as long as he gets above 3, that is all matters.. the way he spent his nights in hostel, any mum will be worried stiff.. each time i call him, either he said in tv room or watching shows on his laptop.. only during exam time, he told me he was worried.. hak sei ngor..
